The Poás is a volcano that rises 2,708 meters above sea level, since 1989 has significantly increased the emission of gases causing acid rain phenomena that have damaged the flora in some areas of the park and neighboring agricultural plantations.

The summit features two craters, the largest of 1.5Km in diameter and 300 deep, and Laguna Botos, cold water and a clearly storm, that empties into the Caribbean by Angel River, a tributary of the Rio Sarapiqui.

Currently the volcano emits a great amount of gases and water vapor from the various fumaroles located in the inner cone of the crater. Visitor services include information, a park ranger station, trails, restrooms, drinking water, signage, cafe, souvenir shop and several natural viewpoints.
